Jean Giraudoux must have been my kind of person. My last boss would tell me, “We don’t expect much from our employees. We only ask that they do their best everyday.” And he honestly thought that was reasonable. An example of my best would be completing a 10 hour day only to find out that another employee left for personal reasons and I needed to stay and work 24 more hours to meet a crucial dealine for an important client. I simply CAN NOT do that every day. It doesn’t even fit in a day! I don’t even know if I can still do that, but I might find out any given day. Well, the Jean Giraudoux quote that fits in this case is “Only the mediocre are always at their best. “

Hmmm. My Scribbles on the forum are buried on page 3 and I’m not there to promote them … yet, the number of views has almost climbed to 500! Yet another unexplained mystery.

I can relate to the finding purpose convo….I have spent my whole life looking for it, and looking for the inspiration to find my purpose!! I want to find something that I love, and really go for it….but up til now that has escaped me….The only real thing that I have had any passion for is caring for and rescuing animals….my heart just leaps for it!! But I have, as he said, gotten into my day to day, and worried about paying my bills and going to work, that you tent to lose that passion….I say congrats to all of those who have never let that passion for what they love go. I wish that I had done that with my life. The problem that I, and many others I’m sure, run into is fear. Fear of failure, fear of being alone in your journey, fear of finding that your actually not good at something, even though you love doing it. I have let so many opportunities in my life slip through my fingers due to fear of the unknown…..I vow today, right now, to never allow that fear to hold me back from something that could be great……thanks Allison!!
BTW….your laugh is infectious!!!

I liked the part where he had said that the music that he was making hadn’t left his room in 15 years, and that he really liked to just sit and play. I can really relate to that ,just because that is what i do. The funny thing is that my family memebers, or friends will hear me play, and tell me that i am really good, and that i should play in a band, but when i try and play in front of anyone, i just get really nervous, and i sound like pooh…..LOL
My first guitar was a Toys”r”us, and i completely took it apart, and re-dialed it in, and it sounded like a 1000 dollar guitar. Saved up some money, and got a decent guitar now. Which i have had since 1992. I just love to play, and create:)

wow.. mark’s music sounds good. And I’ve noticed that it’s perfect for smallville episodes. Could it be possible to feature mark’s music in the episode allison is directing??

i just saw mark this past weekend in chicago’s Anime Central convention and he was amazing. i’ve loved him and his work since i was 10 or 11 (24 now). i’m a little sad that the music overshadows the interview towards the end of the video but otherwise amazing footage and i hope to see more good stuff!
